“OK For the Money”
Reviewed 28 January 2007

We spent two nights at this La Quinta Inn.

First, the negatives: 1) Our phone did not work. The person at the desk said that it was not turned on and supposedly fixed the problem. It still did not work until someone eventually fixed it the next day. 2) There was a burned out bulb in what already was a very dull ceiling fixture in the living area. Maintenance eventually fixed it. 3) Our stay was for two nights, and our room was not made up after the first night. We were out of the room by 9:30 AM, returned from 3:00 to 4:30 PM and then did not return until about 9:00 PM. We saw the person making up rooms in our hallway, but for some reason, she never got to our room.

Finally the positives: 1) The price was right - considerably lower than we found for almost all of the other hotels in the area. 2) The room seemed to be clean. 3) The staff was helpful in printing out our flight boarding passes, and the attendant in the breakfast area was outstanding - very polite, attentive and helpful.

  • Liked — The low price combined with the mostly favorable TripAdvisor reviews.
  • Disliked — That housekeeping forgot to make up our room while we were out.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel in April of 2006 and we were pleasantly surprised with the lovely room that we were given. It was clean and we found the staff to be friendly. We ate at Lenny's - just down the street - each morning so we can't comment on the continental breakfast, but we would definitely stay here again when in the area. Hotel has a lovely pool and patio area and hot pool. Our only suggestion would be that smoking and drinking of alcoholic beverages not be allowed in the pool/hot tub area, as a couple of guests spoiled some of our time in the hot pool with their behavior.

The staff at this hotel wasn't what I would consider prime hotel staff. As a business traveler usually traveling alone, I would expect that my room be safe. I had previously requested an upper floor in a quieter area of the hotel. I was given a 2nd room floor (there are 2 floors here) facing the pool at the entrance to the main hallway. Definitely not quiet. The inside lock was completely missing, and the a/c didn't work until I jiggled the plug every day and the stairs outside were alwasy wet and slippery without any no-slip guards. Tricky with no elevator and lots of luggage. Upon checkout, the girl at the counter was exceptionally rude. Would definitely not recommend this hotel. To be fair, LaQuinta corporate staff did their part to make up for this disaster but there needs to be major re-work done at this location.

I stayed at the LaQuinta Inn from March 14th through March 20th. The last 2 years I stayed next door at the Econolodge, but it was full so I decided to try the LaQunita Inn. I was not disappointed! This place was formerly known as Clearwater Central Inn & Suites and before that, it was the Best Western Clearwater Central. This place has undergone a complete makeover - completely remodeled and much better looking than I remembered it the previous year. Super-friendly front-desk staff, especially Kristi and the girl who worked after her(I didn't catch her name). Safe-deposit boxes were available at the front desk at no charge!! Very clean and comfortable room - loved the desk and rollaway chair. Rooms had a hair dryer,coffee maker and iron and ironing board. The bathroom was surpisingly spacious for a hotel and there was ample closet space. Wasn't able to get a mini-fridge for the room - they are hard to come by with so many people, but I managed! Had a small problem with the toilet seat - called the front desk and within 3 minutes, the maintenance man showed up to fix it! All the rooms had a sliding door which leads either to a patio on the first floor(was able to park my car right outside my room) or a private balcony on the 2nd level. Housekeeping was outstanding as well. Also, this place DOES accept pets!! Free breakfast available every morning with lots to choose from. This place is only a 15 minute walk from the new Phillies stadium(Bright House Networks Field). One more thing, the pool was completely clean, as was the pool area. I would definetly stay here again and would recommend this place to travelers - especially with kids and/or pets!!

People were rude, And they are not pet friendly and we were told that they were. They wanted us to leave in the middle of a hurricane and find another room.

This hotel was a big surprise. We were looking for an economy hotel and trying to avoid a big chain. While we did find great rates, we were surprised to find many comforts found in the upscale chains. Our room was beatiful! All new furniture, every room has a balcony, and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I ever slept on. The new owners have been making big improvements and are supposed to be converting to a La Quinta. It is already great, but sounds like it will be even better! They also provides FREE Wireless high speed internet! We will definetly be back!

Nice hotel, on the clean side, with the exception of the laundry room.
The worst was the PEOPLE! So rude and the housekeeping staff was of no help. We stayed for 10 days, and 9 days we had to call and ask for towels so each of us could take a shower every day! It's a really cute little place with a lot of potential. If you really want to enjoy your stay, go to the EconoLodge next door! That's where we stayed the last time we visited (no availabiliby this time) and we loved it. Great pool area there and the service was great!
